Hello, I've got an assignment where I'm told to create a chat room application. I have already created the application using Java. But I am also asked to research at least three different technologies to implement chat room application, but I only know one... that is using Java Sockets.
Is there any other technology? if there is, what is the easiest to implement a chat room application (and the server)?
Actually I still don't understand the word "Technology", whether that means the programming language used to implement the application or some frameworks or other things. Note that I'm still a beginner in programming :(.
I'm sorry if this question is too basic and stupid but I really have no idea. If anybody could help me then I will be really grateful. Thank you.
